The diagram below is a schematic of the experimental setup.The friction force between the sled and the surface is equal in magnitude and opposite indirection to the pulling force exerted by her father.The friction force between the sled and the surface is negligible.The acceleration of the sled is in the same direction as the pulling force.The net force acting on the sled is zero.The friction force between the sled and the surface is equal in magnitude and opposite indirection to the horizontal component of the pulling force exerted by her father.
On a piece of paper, draw two free body diagrams, one for the hanging mass m1and another for thesliding mass m2showing all forces acting on each of the masses. Then answer the following questions.(a) Identify the forces acting on the sliding mass m2. (Select all that apply.)(b) Using the direction rosette shown above, indicate the direction for each of the forces actingon m2that you identified in part (a). If any of the forces listed below is not applicable, choose'NA'.
